A few months ago Kath moved into her newly built home, which is just so wonderful, and at the time I'd planned to stitch Kath a housewarming gift. I didn't quite make it with that idea, but I knew that I'd have time to stitch something for Kath's birthday which was earlier this month. I had the perfect pattern and kit, A is for Angel by the Sweetheart Tree - I'd bought this awhile ago with intentions of stitching it for Kath someday.
I've always loved the Sweetheart Tree patterns so this was a real pleasure to stitch and frame for my dear friend.

fabric and thread supplied in kit
I had fun putting together a few other gifts for Kath too - a pinking rotary cutter, St Noel pattern by With Thy Needle and Thread, a fat quarter of fabric and a Soup recipe book as Kath makes the most yummiest soups :)
I've now only 3 1/2 days of work left for the year and I can honestly say I'm counting down the hours. This week has been a little less crazy than last week, which is good for easing into holiday mode :) This year I have off from the 22nd December through until the 17th January. Glenn is also off from the 23rd until the 10th January so lots of family time for us with Hannah relaxing around the house, spending time with family and friends and generally having a good break.
I have a bit of catching up to do with my emails and sharing pics of some Christmas treats that have arrived recently in the mail as we've just had three days with no landline or internet, what a pain that's been, but at least its all fixed now :)
